IB Musical Links Investigation

Recommended Posts

Who all is in an IB music class? If so, what's your IA topic?

I'm comparing Jonathan Larson's RENT: The Musical and Giacomo Puccini's La Boheme. It's proven to be very challenging so far.

lmao

I'm comparing Bamboleo (Gipsy Kings) and Hej Sarna (Kapela Biesada)

It's not too bad... for starters they're both written in DMaj so I already have that

And they're both folkloric musics so in the end while they're both very different they have lots in common

I'm comparing Dubstep and didjeridoo music..... It's 3:30am the day of and I'm realizing the difficulty of my options.

what songs ? I have a friend using Imogen Heap's Hide & Seek as her first song (non remixed, acapella)

I did my topic on Drum and Bass vs Minimalism. I used Pendulum's Girl In The Fire and compared it to Steve Reich's Six Pianos.

No score was available for the Pendulum piece so I used FL studio to export sheet music PDFs and paste them into my project. My teacher was very impressed with it as I chose a very modern piece and genre overall to compare minimalism with. I'll admit I didn't sleep the night before it was due though. I spent 9 hours on it the night before the due date and probably a cumulative of about 14 hours on it total. It was a really good effort and I was proud of the result. I ended at about 1700 words.

That sounds really cool! Any chance I could read it?

I've never heard of students using such modern tunes, and DnB is definitely an interesting genre

I've got a friend who compared and contrasted Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin to one of Beethoven's symphonies. It was an interesting project, to say the least.
